What Canterbury Races
Where Canterbury Park Racecourse – King St, Canterbury NSW 2193
When Wednesday, June 7, 2023
First Race 12:40pm AEST

Racing heads to the south-west of Sydney as Canterbury Park hosts a competitive seven-race program on Wednesday afternoon. The rail is out +6m the entire circuit for the meeting, and a favourable forecast suggests we should be racing on a Good 4 surface. The first race is set to get underway at 12:40pm AEST.

Best Bet: Commemorative

The opening race at Canterbury is for the two-year-old fillies, and we’re excited by the prospect of Commemorative making her racing debut. She’s trained out of the James Cummings stable, and those that keep a keen eye on barrier trials would have seen two very nice pieces of work by this daughter of I Am Invincible. Her latest jump-out saw her cruise to the wire under her own steam to score by a half-length, and it was an indicator her racing manners are very professional for such an inexperienced galloper. The main danger and likely leader in this race is drawn to her outside in the form of Power Ballard, and we’re hopeful leading hoop James McDonald can stalk her every step of the way on Commemorative. If McDonald can put her in a forward position and within striking distance on the turn, Commemorative will be powering to the line to secure a debut victory.

Next Best: Magic Carpet

Magic Carpet hasn’t exactly been a money-spinner for followers after eight appearances and no victories to her name; however, this looks like a terrific opportunity to return the favour for punters. She’s been running into some stiff competition – particularly as a two-year-old coming out of some seriously strong form-lines behind She’s Extreme in the 2022 edition of the Magic Night, and another game effort behind Paris Dior in the Percy Sykes Stakes. She just hasn’t recaptured those heights in her three-year-old campaign, but her barrier trials leading into this first-up assignment suggest she isn’t too far away from finding her best. A 186-day spell seems to have done her wonders, and if she can bring her trial form to race-day, Magic Carpet should be right up to these rivals.

Next Best Again: Balkans

Balkans is another debutant we’ve got an eye on for Godolphin. His trials have been sensational – particularly his latest winning jump-out at Hawkesbury on May 22 where he went on to salute under a stranglehold for jockey Chad Schofield. This time it’ll be Sam Clipperton taking the reins, and from a soft barrier (5) he should have very little trouble finding the one-one position. This son of Lonhro should get every conceivable chance to make his debut a winning one, especially in a race with plenty of other first-starters.
